For anyone interested in the non promoted failing league that has no hope unless it can get back the soul of the ever popular NSL teams… those teams that have hundreds of thousand of fans willing to come on board … if ONLY ???

But for anyone interested on Monday night on Bold just after 10…. Bold have a one hour panel show on Australian Football…

Football has lost its soul in Australia and only the fans can save it now

Yes & No

Yes we need to get the active support back…

No its not the last missing piece to the jigsaw.

There is still a lot to do and its will require a lot of hard work…

What many want and many believe as well is that the answers and solutions are both easy to identify, and simple to do… when in fact there is a lot of hard slog to do, and a lot of what people want cannot be achieved in the near future…

Unless you have detailed and inside knowledge you have no idea how much APL are spending on production.

I have read articles that say APL are paying for everything including the people calling and panel personal…. I have read that they pay for all Paramount costs… I have read CBS have provided a base service and APL can choose any game to increase cameras and thats the only costs they have… I have read APL and 10 are sharing costs….

I won’t even try to make a call on it as I simply don’t know or have access to information accept to say APL wanted control of the product shown… and they are still on a steep learning curve and are nowhere near finished…

Just on the Optus EPL coverage you mentioned… tis an interesting topic… consider the EPL coverage has a media budget in the billions per year and arguably 60 plus years of experience behind it …..

AS for Fox, I am not the mega critic many are of Fox… to me the Football community including the clubs had a civil war and Football torn itself apart… Fox rating fell thu the floor…

To think and BTW we had to have the civil war… but to think there are no consequences are simply wrong… and one thing was Football treated Fox media business as sorta unimportant… and then wondered why Fox dropped its standards…

But to your overall point… yes improvements are still needed and APL have said that as well…

Mods don’t take forever … two posts …

Football has lost its soul in Australia and only the fans can save it now

Hopefully my post comes thu soon its gone to the mods…

Nick I think you are totally wrong especially in many of the things you say are facts…

Football has lost its soul in Australia and only the fans can save it now

Nick

Sorry mate… I think you are so so so so so so so far from whats happening….

You have simply made claims that are not true…

You say hardly any marketing… mate unless you live under a rock its hard to miss…
==== Ads on 10 all over the place
==== A great web page
==== A great song
==== A logocial plan moving forward

You said we are getting half the money than Fox…

Errrr Fox was at best 60 million.
===== FA 30 million per year
===== APL 42 million per year.

Sponsors are down… yes agree….

Rating are up and up by a lot… coming off a low base but they are about 3 times last years numbers…

PUBLICKLY stated it will take 3 to 4 years to rebrand… APL have said they are only chasing Football fans…

I have no idea what your expectation are or what could be achieved … but you seem to want a full European Football model and revenue streams from day 1… no one can do that…

This time we have an Admin saying we need to rebuild…

ACTUALLY its articles like this that totally fail to take a realistic view of the position and say this is what I want … aside from being full of factual errors … it a continuation of the never ending negative articles based on what I would like the world to be…

Football has never been in recent history in a better place to build sustained growth… and stabilise revenue…

You are correct we need fans… but there are plans in place that IMO will work to get fans… I strongly suggest you read them and then discuss those plans …. I am very open to discussing what the plans are if they will work… but this is crazy ….

Football has lost its soul in Australia and only the fans can save it now

I enjoyed the match…. defense is an issue hopefully that young centre back pairing can get enough game time in before the world cup to improve and get used to each other…

As an aside its hard to find fault with 10’s coverage….

High flyer Kyah! Simon has final say as Matildas salvage draw against US

Gosford stadium has been voted on a number of sites as one of the best due to its location and view…

The away day football experience: Following the Jets to Western Sydney

Just on the Sydney Melbourne thing….

You gotta say the MV & MC are stronger than SFC & WSW….

A buoyant Victory and a busted Sydney – just what the A-League Men’s needed

Simon

Lovely read …

Just on crowd rebuilding to previous levels… I think a lot will come down to perceptions of both the competition, and WSW….

At some point in time WSW need to hit form…. they seem to have caught SFC illness when for years SFC struggled in off field management…

Looking forward to both Jest and Drive By fans to the Coast for our matches…

Seems a weird award…

Australasia is Sky Blue: Sydney FC named best team in region over Crusaders, Sixers and Storm

Still recovering from Waz’s post….

Wonders aloud what affect if any the Omicron variant will have on the balance of the season….

Waz, out of interest if I can recall previous posts you have made…. you don’t believe a second team in Brisbane should be considered …. so how does Brisbane get say more say if it only has one team…

As an aside to others, I am not overly keen on the Gong, getting a team…. sounds good bring back the Wolves… but its a small and well spread out population with a very strong rugby league presence …. I think the Gong should be a second division side…

A buoyant Victory and a busted Sydney – just what the A-League Men’s needed

Deep down in my soul I don’t think the Gong has the numbers …. it also has had years of a league team….

For me the Gong need to be in a second division… the last thing we need is another poorly supported team…

Rebuilding active support is the biggest key to the A-League Men's success

AnyWho, busy day and no time to repost but the essence of my post was the Active Support will help build the demographic APL is after ie.e under 30…

Rebuilding active support is the biggest key to the A-League Men's success

I read a couple of years back that the NFL in the US has determined the greatest risk to its future is massive court decisions….

I think many sports Admins feel the same….

I suspect, there maybe plans afoot across a number of codes to establish new competitions, and hope the debt can be left with in the future to be wound up competitions.

Why World Rugby’s Brain Health Initiative is making my head hurt

Mods... just lost a massive post…

Two issues… first why did it “not fetch”… second and most importantly why does the site not return to the what you had typed…

Sam will go down in history as one of our best ever…. the same company as Ray Baartz, Harry Kwell, Mark Viduka, Attila Abonyi , Tim Cahill

Maybe SR could delay their season by a month, and then play home matches for another say five weeks…. just maybe it could work out

NZ border call sparks concerns over Super Rugby, NBL, A-League seasons

WA also has time limits well into next year as well…

Must be a nightmare for all codes … I guess SR is the worst affected given the number of teams…

NZ border call sparks concerns over Super Rugby, NBL, A-League seasons

I got a feeling the USA match will rate very well….

But has not received much coverage aside from 10.

'That girl's sick!': Sam Kerr on chasing Tim Cahill record and why she wants a 'Barty party'

I am not trying to point score on head injuries …. the collision codes especially in the US are looking at some serious court cases…

Agree it will also apply to Football….

I can see some big cases coming up in Australia especially against codes with plenty of revenue and assets… its the way the legal world works.

Poppa takes just one game to prove he’s still got it

Off topic but very interesting JJ half our interview on the Beyond the Lead podcast….

Poppa takes just one game to prove he’s still got it

thanks waz …. interestingly we did not fall into a financial hole… that’s well done ….

Poppa takes just one game to prove he’s still got it

Totally agree…..
This is a long term play by CBS and its not restricted to Australia they are becoming increasingly aggressive in the US and MLS coverage…
Something not often mentioned… but DT has mentioned it and it was a discussion point in the CBS negotiations….. and this is the mid to long term view…..
Head injuries to past players when often medical advise has been out there but totally ignored in the spirit of … harden up son its part of the game… the collision codes world wide have huge court cases coming up….
These cases will have two general impacts… first financial in funds to be paid into reserve funds out of new revenue… and second on player numbers and the perceptions of these games by both viewers and sponsors….
This is a very long term play by both APL & CBS …. can be easily demonstrated by the fact on Saturday night they play two games at the same time…
Given CBS paid next to nothing for 10, as long as it does not loose to much money there long term interest in creating a streaming service will ensure its funded… and for better or worst Football is part of thir plan…
